Global is local. Local is global.
At the Gillings School, we work in all 100 North Carolina counties and in 60+ countries. Local and global health content infuses our courses and degrees. Through partnerships at home and abroad, our students and faculty transform health around the world and in our backyard. Our Research, Innovation and Global Solutions office promotes and advances the School's global health activities in research, service, practice and teaching through partnerships, internships, outreach and communications.
Message from the Associate Dean for Global Health
"At the Gillings School, global health is local health. We support students, faculty and staff who are working on problems and solutions that will have impact in North Carolina and around the world."Read more about Dr. Bentley.
